I Got Glitches

I'm generally happy, very happy, with Windows 7. When I upgraded, I also went to Office 2007 and IE 8. But a few months in, two glitches have suddenly appeared. When I highlight and bold text in Word 2007, huge portions of the document also turn bold. Only when I hit Ctrl+Z to go back is the intended highlighted text bolded. Rather bizarre.

IE 8, meanwhile, now hangs when I try to go back to the previous page. Sometimes I click again, and of course it goes back two or three pages. I'm waiting for the next release of Firefox and will likely switch back then, but in the meantime it's a little frustrating.

Any of you have these problems? Any fixes? Help me at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
